T-Mobile now lets you add up to four lines on Magenta Unlimited 55+


A few weeks ago, T-Mobile announced a new Magenta 55+ plan specially for its customers who are aged 55 and above. And it looks like they have opened up this option for multi-line customers too. 

When it was announced, T-Mo offered two unlimited lines of Magenta Unlimited 55+ with two free smartphones with 24 monthly bill credits for just $70 per month. With today’s announcement, T-Mobile is allowing customers to add a line for $35 per line after the original 2 for $70 arrangement. There is a limit of up to four lines per account. 

Meanwhile, the Magenta Max 55+ is available at $45 per line/month after the first line. The difference between Magenta Unlimited 55+ and Magenta Max Unlimited 55+ is that the latter comes with 4K UHD streaming and 40GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot data. Magenta Unlimited 55+ only offers SD streaming and 5GB of 4G LTE mobile hotspot data.

    Ouch, that’s expensive…

    Will stick will my Simple Choice plan at $10 for each extra line.

    • Rocketman27

      Simple Choice 10GB $100 for 4 lines, but it’s actually unlimited data. Can’t beat that.

        Uncarrier? Sounds more like Adventure: you are in a maze of twisting little rate plans, all different.

      • Shaun Michalak

        The only problem is, for the rest of us that never got it.. It is not longer available..

  • jozefd14

    Coming from the basic family simple choice, 2 gb data, 3 lines for $102 approx with taxes and fees, going to $105 for 3 lines, unlimited data (100 gb until it gets throttled beyond), INCLUDING NETFLIX, big deal even with adding 3 more dollars a month. Luckily the primary account holder is 55 years old+

      2gb data for 3 lines?? I sure hope you are talking about 2gb of hotspot or else I would say to change your plan.. T-Mobile has their connect plans that are only $15 a month for unlimited talk, text, and 2gb of data.. which increases by 1/2 gig every year for a few years. plus taxes of course.. But here, that would be 6%, so an additional $0.90 and a $2 911 fee.. under $18 total per line.

      • jozefd14

        No like 2 gb of data per line, for 3 lines. I’ve heard of the T-Mobile connect but we do make calls to Canada quite frequently. So we are going to change our plan to the Unlimited 55+ plan.

        • Shaun Michalak

          That would be the downfall for you.. The connect plans say domestic calls only.. So I would take it no Canada or Mexico in that list..

          One corrections that I can make.. They changed the connect plans after I said that, so now it starts at 2.5 gigs instead of 2 gigs.

  • Shaun Michalak

    I guess if you use a lot of data, then this would be good.. But the fact is, a lot of people in that age group do not use a lot of data on their phones. For those people, IMO, I think the connect plan would be better for them.. The connect plan is only $15 a month with 2 gigs of data, plus taxes and fees.. It is prepaid, so here, that would come up to about $18 total in my neck of the woods.. Looking at it that way, you could get 5 lines for under $100 a month total.

      Tell me more about this plan (the connect plan). I’ve never heard of it. Is it thru Tmo?

      • Shaun Michalak

        Yes.. I am not sure about on a tablet or cell, but looking at their site through a laptop, you click on “plans” at the top of the main page, then on the next page, scroll down until you see “prepaid and shop as you go plans”, and click on that.. It is a prepaid type of plan.. Then scroll down again and you will see


        Our lowest-priced plans ever, starting at only $15/month.

        Unlimited talk and text, plus 2GB of high-speed data. And we’ll increase your data by 500MB each year for the next five years.”

        Click shop plans on it and you will get a screen that says

        “Choose your plan.

        For $15/month, you get unlimited talk and text, plus up to 2GB of high-speed data.

        For $25/month, you get unlimited talk and text, and up to 5GB of high-speed data.

        Plus taxes & fees. Domestic use only.”

        Since this is prepaid, you basically only have to pay the plan price, your state sales tax, and whatever your cost is for local 911 service. At least, that is all it is here..

        I will put up a link in another post straight to it.. I am not sure if it will post, which is why I am doing it as another reply..

        • Debra Ann Galvan

          Thanks so much!!

        • Shaun Michalak

          Your welcome.. They brought that plan out almost a year ago, but they do not advertise it much.. I think the reason is that they do not show it off much is because it obviously is not a high money maker, nor does it fit what most cell users want these days.. Which is more then 2 gigs of data.. I would go over to it myself, as we could easily handle that amount considering connecting to my WiFi does not use any data, but the plan I am on is through their Metro line, and we are only paying $25 per line with unlimited data, just no hotspot, and for $7 difference, it is not worth going from unlimited data, to just 2 gigs.
